Weak Comedy Central love for Strangers With Candy

by Annie Wu, posted Jul 15th 2006 5:09PM
Jerri BlankOn Friday night, Comedy Central aired a Strangers With Candy mini-marathon, hosted by the stars (Stephen Colbert, Amy Sedaris, and Paul Dinello) to promote the film. It was great and all, but I was annoyed to see the ridiculous time slot they stuck it in... 1:00 AM to 3:30 AM. Seriously, Comedy Central? You're going to hand over the throwaway time for one of your original series, but play nice with My Super Ex-Girlfriend and their "Sunday with the Guys" afternoon slot? I know Strangers fans are usually a little weird, but we're not all nocturnal. Stephen Colbert's one of your main men now, Comedy Central! Show him some love.

I'm an insomniac, so I caught the whole marathon. Did anyone else watch?

Unfortunately, I went to go see the "Strangers With Candy" movie on Friday night. And it was playing at an indie movie theater. And indie movie theaters sell beer, wine, and most importantly Woodchuck Cider. So I passed out when I got home. Figuratavely, not literally.

So anyway, I was pleasantly surprised to find the breakaway hosting bits had been recorded and put on YouTube. God Bless YouTube. You should be able to find the clip with a "Strangers With Candy" search, filtered by time posted.

RSL: Getting a gold star means you get a gold star. If you get enough, you get to be on the Top TV Squad Contributors list that you see on the right. Everyone loves gold stars.

What do the gold stars do besides heal?

Relly, that's an excellent tradition to start. A shiny gold star for your effort and to hopefully cure you of this dreadful cold (our gold stars have magical healing powers). I hope you feel better soon.

Comments aren't left very often on many posts, so I guess I will start a new tradition and actually leave a comment for every story that I read. I love TV Squad and I want to show my support for it.
I also caught the Strangers With Candy marathon, Annie. Although it was by accident since I'm sick and dying. Okay, maybe not dying, but I have a horrible cold and the sickness kept me up all night in thirst of a good television program. I stumbled across the marathon on Comedy Central and feel asleep to the beautiful (although you can't tell in the series) Amy Sedaris and her comedic performance.

It was great seeing the show again and I can't wait to see the movie!

With the whole series out on DVD, I have no desire to watch it with commercials. Now lets get the rest of the Upright Citizens Brigade episodes released on DVD, season 2 and 3 of that series are some of the best TV ever.

Saw the first ep , then conked out, w/o setting recorder. Didn't hear any advance word, just stumbled on it when Owen Wilson started to bore me on Conan.
